What You'll Get
Like couture winter wear and overly emotive teens, lasagna must be appreciated for its complex layers. Enjoy savory strata with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of rustic Italian fare at Caffé Il Cipresso in Tyngsboro.
Pasta whisperers at Caffé Il Cipresso concoct rustic Italian fare that evokes the Tuscan countryside in their bistro-style dining room, complete with scenic frescos and natural lighting. The menu kicks off with deep-fried gnocchi stuffed with artichokes and topped with tomato sauce and a missing-artichoke flier ($7.99). The savory pollo alla verdicchio features sautéed chicken breasts frolicking alongside artichokes, roasted red peppers, and lemony white wine sauce ($10.99 during lunch; $15.99 during dinner), and calamari ($12.99+) plays hide and seek with sautéed olives, spicy tomato sauce, and coils of linguine. The restaurant also specializes in a host of lasagnas ($9.99+) and paninis ($8.99+), and vegetarians can take refuge in a host of robust dishes, such as the basil-scented ravioli pillows ($10.99+), whose aromas, like feathers dipped in topsoil, tickle noses with memories of springtime herb gardens.

About Caffé Il Cipresso
Caffé Il Cipresso's chefs construct traditional, Old World Italian cuisine with a modern twist, tapping into an arsenal of top-quality ingredients such as fresh haddock, tender veal, and gorgonzola cheese. A smattering of sauces such as pesto and alfredo flood freshly made linguine, penne, and fettuccine noodles. Chicken and fresh seafood, including salmon and shrimp, sizzle in 100% olive oil and artfully complement the eatery's wine list, which flaunts crisp whites, full-bodied reds, and dessert varietals that sparkle like holographic diamonds. The dining room spotlights crimson booths and full-wall murals depicting idyllic countrysides, and the downstairs lounge fuels merrymaking with a full bar. Caffé Il Cipresso also furnishes large events with catering options, including pans of homemade pasta and entrees that serve up to 24 people.
